    Actually if you demote the dc gracefully no need to perform metadata cleanup.But seems there was problem during demote process.

     So you should perform metadata cleanup to remove(completely) dc from domain.

    still i didn't disjoint from domain. in additional>>>.also you need to disjoin server from domain before metadata cleanup.

  • the error is ( The Processing of Group Policy failed. Windows attempted to read the file  \\domain\sysvol\domain\policies\{xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx}\gpt.ini from a domain controller and was not successful.

    I tried to solve it and google it but still the same issue.

  • i found that the policy GUID has been renamed so that way the processing is failed.

    now is there any impact if i rename it to the original one?

    or should i do the authoritative restore?

  • Hi,
    {xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx} should be the GUID of the GPO which could not be found. You could get the GPO name by running Get-GPO –Guid command, and then check if you could find the GPO on the working domain controllers.

    No,you shouldn't rename the orginal one.as you mentioned this server is not an DC anymore,you should do a metadata cleanup,before that you should disjoin the server.

  • hi ,

    i disjoin the server. and i solved the problem of event id 1058 which about The Processing of Group Policy failed. Windows attempted to read the file  \\domain\sysvol\domain\policies\{xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx}\gpt.ini from a domain controller and was not successful. 

    salutation: 

    I found the policy object on sysvol renamed by the system. however. i have confirmed that the all files and folders in that object is the same as the original. so, i take a copy of renamed object and i keep only the exactly name of the original object . then, just gpupdate /force. finally, all the issues has been gone the problem solved. (all just copy the object, rename to the same to the original file)

    thanks to all
